Cat found with arrow through head

 The Associated Press is reporting that a cat in California was found with an arrow through its head. The cat is OK and recovering from surgery.

Here's what the report from the AP:

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California cat found with an arrow sticking through one ear and into the base of its head is recuperating after surgery at a veterinary hospital. 
Max, a three-year-old domestic short hair is seen with an arrow
through his ear on Sunday, April 10, in Santa Cruz, Calif.
Nancy Paquin, the owner of “Max,” says that the cat showed up at the family home in Santa Cruz Sunday night with the arrow protruding from its head. 
Santa Cruz County Animal Services Manager Todd Stosuy says the cat was shot with a 12-inch arrow that appeared to come from a crossbow. 
No arrests have been made, but animal control officers are canvassing the neighborhood trying to identify a possible suspect. 
Paquin says that except for a hole through its ear, the three-year-old housecat is “doing really well.”
